Lies, Damned Lies, and Commercials

Have you seen the commercial with the guy who's trying to quit saying:

Fossil Find Raises Global Cooling Fears

The area around Illinois was once a tropical swamp, according to a new fossil find.

The climate was ever wet, hot, and humid," said Scott D. Elrick, geologist with the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS).

"The modern-day equivalent would be some of the peat swamps of Indonesia."

Could this mean the Earth is growing colder, and will soon be too cold to inhabit? Why can't the government do something? We've only got a few million years before The End.
